Bridge Group Celebrates

In August, a small group of us met at a friend’s home for an afternoon of bridge. Our hostess has lived at the lovely Kawartha Lakes Retirement Home on West Street since its inception in 2013 and we’ve always enjoyed our visits there. Starting at 1:30, we wiled away the afternoon playing cards, chatting and, of course, drinking the mandatory tea. Then it was time to go home. Upon departure, we promised to get together again in September and, of course in October. Why is October important? Well, that is the month of our hostess’s birthday! How old will she be? A lady never tells her age, but I think under these extraordinary circumstances, we may be pardoned for boasting. Our friend will be turning an unbelievable 102! And she still plays a smart game of bridge. Have a Happy Birthday, Rose! Dorothy Hannon (long-time bridge partner) Bobcaygeon

Weed Control

I just read Susan Franks letter about the use of “Glyphosate” to control various weeds along our byways and highways in the City of Kawartha Lakes, and no doubt elsewhere in this province of ours. What is this municipality and this province thinking about in allowing this “Bee” killer chemical to be used in our province? There are numerous arguments going on about this chemical being responsible for the extinction of Earth’s major pollinators. Bees are disappearing faster than we can breed them and if we continue to allow this chemical to be manufactured and used “carte blanche” without the most stringent regulation, or to my way of thinking, totally banned from use anywhere across Canada. Our country will be totally mired in chemicals that have long-term effects on today’s and future

Canadians, along with our wildlife, while our Great Lakes are fast becoming inundated with numerous chemical soup mixtures, and Lake Ontario has its own 350 of them, already. Spraying Glyphosate willy nilly on our roadsides gets into our water, which eventually finds its way into our drinking water at some point in time and is killing our honey bees on a massive scale. Isn’t it time you did something about these poisonous chemicals that are killing our pollinator bees? Remember what DDT did to wildlife. These Corporate chemical companies will bend the truth about any tests to make a fast buck -- cigarettes being the leader of all time, lead paint, etc. The trail of banned chemicals is fast becoming a list of health issues for many Canadians. The CKL should be banning all chemicals that have the slightest suspicion of causing harm to animals or human kind. G Hawkridge City of Kawartha Lakes

A Beggar Came To My Door

I heard a knock at my door this morning and when I answered it, I was surprised to see a shabby looking man standing there. He handed me a card that showed his picture and bore the message: I am deaf and dumb, can you help me? He held up a bag of key chains. Strangely enough, I was in need of one, so I opened my purse and handed him some money. My friends tell me I was “gullible and foolish”. The government takes care of people like him, they say. But I have no regrets for I can still remember the stark days of the 1930s when often beggars would come to our door, their hands held out in supplication. My parents always invited them in for a simple meal or handed them 10 cents for a cup of coffee and maybe some bread. My grandmother, a minister’s wife, always held to the credo: “It is our duty to help the poor.” And as the times get harder today, I believe we should all follow this edict.

City Hall Lindsay Airport Plan Takes Flight By Pat Warren

Council agreed with the staff recommendation to set monies aside to fund periodic studies allowing planning for the future. This approach will allow the airport to be prepared for future expansion once a major tenant comes forward. This move will also help the city be prepared for a major Federal/Provincial grant opportunity allowing the city to be shovel-ready once these grants are announced. Although most municipal airports don’t break even, the Lindsay airport has recently shown great fiscal improvement with most years showing only a small deficit. Mayor Letham commented “there really isn’t a deficit as the airport brings in economic development dollars.” This amount is estimated to be over $5 million a year in direct and indirect economic impact. But the most compelling reason to keep the airport is the ORNGE ambulance service. In 2016, 68 critical patients were airlifted from the community to receive lifesaving aid from larger centres. In particular, Councillor Pollard spoke personally about the merits of the ORNGE ambulance service that helped save a family member. Some things you just can’t put a price on. home

At the meeting of September 12th, City of Kawartha Lakes Council supported the continuance of the municipal airport in Lindsay. Councillor Strangway made the motion: “THAT the City of Kawartha Lakes continues to financially support both Operating and Capital Budget, in accordance with the asset management plan, to maintain the existing Level of Service for the Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport; THAT funds be allocated to multi-year Capital Budgets for studies/options for the Airport to expand services in the future; and THAT the Kawartha Lakes Airport Board reviews the governance model of the Airport and report back to Council in 2018.” As previously reported, Council had to choose whether to close the airport, sell or lease the airport to a private company, invest heavily in the infrastructure, or remain with a status quo approach. Currently the Municipal Airport is utilized by of the various user groups including a flight school; ORNGE home of the (Support Health Care – Air Ambulance); OPP; MNRF; BOBCAYGEON Sept. home Canadian Military; private aircraft; and others. 1,2 & 3 BOBCAYGEON FAIR OCTOBER of OCTOBER 28th Council chose a path that would allow the airport the FAIR 1,2 & 3 7:30 pm 705-887-2075 to support the same services today but also to be prepared for tomorrow.

City of Kawartha Lakes Council is considering the recommendations made by the Arenas Working Group about capital investment in arenas across the municipality. In December of 2016, Council decided to keep all arenas operating while the Working Group prepared recommendations. This group has met over the last year to explore how best to provide arena services to users well into the future while reducing the annual operating deficit of arenas. The recommendations adopted by Council include: • Maintaining the Manvers, Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay and Woodville arena facilities as required for continued operations; • Scheduling the Ops arena for a complete refurbishment to bring it up to date and ensure its viability; • Exploring a new arena complex in the Oakwood/ Little Britain area with the goal of combining the two existing facilities. A single- and twin-pad format will

be studied, as well as the opportunity to combine additional facilities in the same location; and • Explore building a new arena complex in the Village of Omemee to replace the existing Emily/Omemee complex. The existing facility is dated and in need of substantial capital investment to extend its life cycle. Staff will report back by June of 2018 on the requirements in order for the above recommendations to take place. Any future decisions will impact the 10-year financial plan which is based on maintaining all 10 ice surfaces as status quo. The Working Group recognizes that longer term planning will allow the City to capitalize on grant opportunities as they arise.

Since 2013 two solar projects have been in the development stages in Trent Lakes. Initially Green Life Solar was responsible for the projects, but since 2016 the international company, ReneSola (in 16 countries) has purchased the business and taken control. The G2 project of 500kW is proposed for the Flynn’s Corners area, on County Road 36 just east of the Hydro One Switch Yard. This solar project was stalled because the Eastern Meadowlark (a species at risk) was found on the site. ReneSola, in consultation with the MNRF (Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests) has created a mitigation plan to protect the birds.

The second project of 250kW, known as G10, is situated at 1707 Bessie Avenue just off County Road 36. This area has 17 residential properties close to the proposed solar site. There were two problems here: • ReneSola could not comply with the required 100 metre setback from other properties due to space restrictions and requested Trent Lakes Council allow a 20 metre setback instead. • The second was the existence of Butternut trees (endangered species) on the site. At the September 5 council meeting the two sites were discussed. It was concluded that the G2 site should go ahead. Council was not unanimous on the G10 proposal of altering the setback distance. Councillors Raymond and Lambshead (who visited the site) supported the project. “I visited the site,” said Raymond. “I could not see other properties. The company also has to do visual screenings and it appears the majority of people in the area support the project.” Councillor Persson also visited the site. Although he too stated that the property was hidden he was not in favour. Deputy Mayor Windover was not in favour but gave no reason for that. In a letter to Council, ReneSola explained that they had tried to contact all 17 property owners in the area both through mail and personal visits. Eleven households signed in support, 4 gave no response and 2 refused to sign. In response to the endangered Butternut trees, further mitigation would take place to protect the trees that are there and plant and nurture more of the species. Council voted in favour of both projects continuing to move forward. Each project is expected to operate for 20 years.

Eric Gillespie, legal counsel for the appellants opposing the Dewdney Mountain Farms mega quarry at Nogies Creek, will be at the Bobcaygeon Service Centre on Saturday, September 23 at 10am. Gillespie will be explaining the process of the legal trail that has taken place since 2014 and prospects for success at the final hearing on September 26 at the Divisional Court of Justice in Oshawa. Hundreds of area residents have been following this case closely as the impacts of increased truck traffic, road and bridge depletion, environmental and other concerns have become key rallying issues. The appellants who have been fighting this quarry development through the courts are confident that their case has merit and are asking one final time for the public’s financial support on September 23 when Gillespie speaks about the key issues of defence. Many other large quarry proposals are in the works for the north Kawartha region. This industry, if left unchecked, will have an impact on the quality of life for residents and tourists in the entire region. The outcome of this Dewdney case will set the precedent for every new quarry development in the Kawarthas. Your support at this time is key to the future of our beautiful home.

Working to serve you better

By Mayor Andy Letham

Council has been focused on improving the level of service we offer across all areas of our City. This fall, Corporate Customer Service Standards for all City staff will be presented to Council. Training on these standards will be provided for staff, with full implementation by January 1, 2018. We are working to serve you better across the board. Another example of service improvement is in Planning and Development. This department includes services that assist everyone from homeowners looking to add a deck or pool to their property to developers applying to build a subdivision or business owners wanting to expand their facilities. We are aware that in the past, these expansions have not always been easy due to complicated processes, wait times or applicable fees. You may have heard of the work of the Planning Approvals Task Force this year. The Task Force has done a thorough review of this department and made recommendations for improvement. I’m pleased to say that we are already starting to see the results of these changes. Working together with Kawartha Conservation, we have shortened wait times for residents waiting for consultations that involve both of our organizations. We have trained staff in the Planning and Development department on customer service and are implementing standards for response times. This is a complicated process that won’t change overnight, but we’re encouraged by what we are hearing on the streets about the changes to date. We’re also encouraged by the amount of new development in Kawartha Lakes. New subdivisions, condos and commercial development are all taking place like never before. The investment we’ve made in infrastructure so that these projects can proceed is starting to pay off. The growth resulting from these projects will increase our tax base, which spreads the cost of running the City over more users and makes living and doing business here more affordable for everyone. I’m also very pleased that our new municipal website is live at I think you’ll find it user friendly and will appreciate the new options to stay informed about City news and events. Please take a moment to subscribe to the information that you’d like to receive by email or directly to your smart phone or tablet.

Local public speaker Melda Roache Clark hosts “A Broken Mind,” an evening talk on mental health, depression, sexual abuse and body image. Sharing her personal journey with the audience, Melda relates how these issues have affected her life in a multitude of ways. Melda Roache Clark is a mental health speaker hailing from a small fishing village in Nova Scotia. Now living in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Melda is a natural storyteller, sharing her true-to-life trials and successes with audiences in Ontario and on the east coast. A helping hand for those on their own mental health journeys, Melda shares her point of view as a survivor as well as a wife, mother, and grandmother. She explains the fallout from sexual assault and mental illness in her own life along with how she has managed to carve out a new path with support from family, friends, colleagues and health professionals. “I highly recommend ‘A Broken Mind’,” says Pastor Melvin Wheaton of Lockeport, Nova Scotia. “Melda has an incredible way of delivering her talk that is relatable, enjoyable, informative and nonthreatening. She lets people know, in her unique way, that it is okay to struggle, you are not alone in your struggles, and you do not have to struggle in silence or alone.” Melda will be speaking at Lakes Community Church, 269 Main St. on Thursday, September 28 at 7pm.

Bringing Out The Best in People

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc on the Caribbean before slamming into Florida over the weekend. The numbers tell the story of devastation. Damage is estimated at approximately $62 billion. Twenty-three people have been reported dead so far in the United States. Six people are reported to have died in a Florida nursing home and five others died in suspected carbon monoxide poisoning while using generators. Another man was killed in Georgia after a tree fell on his home. In total 61 people in Irma’s path lost their lives.  The power of nature is a force to be reckoned with, something beyond our control. As residents watched and waited for Irma to come bearing down on them, there was little they could do. Some boarded up their homes and secured them as well as they could. Many people fled north trying to outrun the winds and floods.  While the storm raged on, people from all across the country and Canada rushed in to help.  Ontario Hydro announced that 175 employees were headed to Florida to help restore power to millions.  Two dozen Nova Scotia Power employees headed out to Tampa and Toronto Hydro says it sent nearly 30 employees to help after receiving a request from Tampa Electric.  Within 24 hours, Florida Power & Light said crews had already restored power to 40 percent of the 5 million

customers affected by Irma. They say all power should be restored by September 22. A nun in Florida pitched in to help clean up by taking a chainsaw to downed trees while dressed in her full habit. The police posted a video of Sister Margaret Ann at work on social media after an officer spotted her with chainsaw in hand.  Four members of Toronto Based Global Medic went to St. Maarten with the hopes of delivering water purification tablets to clean drinking water. The island took an almost direct hit from Irma and was devastated.  A small town in Georgia banded together to help feed hundreds of evacuees. Perry, Georgia has an estimated population of just over 16,000 people. Officials say they were inundated with evacuees and everyone pitched in to help them. A group of volunteers begins cooking at 5am and the last meal is served at 9pm. They serve about 1,000 meals a day and 500 snacks.  Mother Nature’s power cannot be underestimated but neither can the power of people. The power of love, kindness and generosity is an unstoppable force. We may not be able to control the weather but we sure can come together to lessen its impact.

The Mash Bash is a terrific event that raises money to benefit the Kawartha North Family Health Team (KNFHT) walk-in clinics in Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls. Golfers gathered at Eganridge Golf & Country Club and more than 170 people attended a gala dinner at the Dunsford Community Centre that brings in the cash. With a live auction, a silent auction and a toonie auction at the gala, in addition to corporate sponsorships and golfer participation, the event raised $34,500 this year for the clinics which are supported only by private donations. Over the 5 years since the first event, the group has raised more than $122,000.

September 22 to Oct 5 Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Every minute, every hour, every day you spend in anger means one thing for certain: you have lost that time when you could be happy. Aquarius, try to stem resentment and replace it with cheer. Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Among your many zodiac traits, Pisces, is your quality of great empathy and forgiveness towards others and their circumstances. We hope you are aware of this and how much it means to those around you. Be proud of yourself! Aries (March 21 to April 20) The summer may be over, Aries, but that doesn’t mean that the red-hot romance you experienced is over; or that the affection you had hoped for will not happen. Fall is a wonderful time to fall in love! Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Did you know that Carol Burnett shares your zodiac sign, Taurus? That may be because people born under it are known to have a wonderful sense of humour and to often use this humour to be the centre of attention. This is you! Keep making people laugh!

Cancer (June 23 to July 23) “Down in their hearts, wise men know this truth: the only way to help yourself is to help others.”: Elbert Hubbard. This may not be the solution to everyone’s problems – some problems go deep – but helping others will certainly give more meaning to your life, Cancer, and fill up your days! Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) You may soon be meeting up with old friends and reconnecting with family. There are many lovely welcomes lying in store for you, Leo. Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Working daily with people with whom you don’t see eye-to-eye can be a frustrating and disheartening experience, Virgo. Does this apply to you? You need to ask yourself some questions. Is there anything that can be done? Don’t let it eat away at you and spoil your career chances. Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) It’s the first day of fall, Libra (Sept. 22), and the equinox when the sun rises due east and sets due west. You may think it bodes cold, dreary days ahead, but why not look to the Spring blooms that will come. Plant some crocus bulbs, tulips and others and think positive! Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Be careful with money during this next zodiac phase, Scorpio. Don’t get duped into get-ahead schemes that will, instead, leave you behind. Stay focused.

Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Kind words are free! They cost you nothing, and, yet, think how much wealth they bring to the person hearing them, Gemini. So why not spread some golden moments today?

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Don’t let the naysayers get you down, Sag! You are doing everything you should be doing right now to move ahead with your life. It will take time, but blue skies are ahead!

The Kawartha Promoter

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan 20) People appreciate you Capricorn, so don’t you forget that! You are considered reliable and generous – and a great friend. Keep these thoughts in your heart.

GIVING REFUGE TO THOSE IN NEED By Kirk Winter In January, 2016, Bobcaygeon welcomed the Al Awad family of five – Syrian refugees fleeing their war torn homeland. For months, a group of 40 concerned citizens from Bobcaygeon worked tirelessly to successfully sponsor the family, and bring them to Canada. The Bobcaygeon and Area Refugee Committee (BARC) formed subcommittees to take on jobs like language training, transportation, health care, financial needs and housing, providing the necessities of life for the family. Line Pinard, a spokesperson for the group, praised the commitment and dedication of the BARC members who have put in countless volunteer hours to assist these people in need. Pinard also pointed out the

We arrived in Canada from a refugee camp in Lebanon on January 23rd, 2016. It was very cold outside, but our welcome here was very warm. There was a whole bus load of people waiting for us outside our new apartment in Bobcaygeon. This was our second attempt to try and come to Canada. We didn’t know very much about Canada, but everyone in the refugee camp said that it was a very good place to go. We were very happy when we found out that BARC had sponsored us to come to Bobcaygeon. Before we arrived here, we didn’t know anything about Bobcaygeon and we had very little communication with our sponsors. I really liked Bobcaygeon as soon as we settled here. What I enjoy the most is how quiet a place it is, particularly in the winter. Everyone here has been extremely kind and generous with me and my family. Since I arrived here I have never experienced any discrimination or negative attitudes. My only concern about Bobcaygeon was that it was a place surrounded by water and I was concerned about us floating away. I really like the snow here and actually prefer winter to summer as I do not like mosquitoes and other insects. At least there are no scorpions here like in Syria! Some of the things I have come to enjoy here are Tim Horton’s donuts and Canada Dry. During my last few years in Syria, life was very difficult for my family and I. I personally survived many terrible hardships which affect me still today. I worry that I don’t have the background and skills to get a job here. I am working with many people to deal with my challenges and improve my skills. I am aware that I will need to improve my English, training and education if I want to get a good job. I am learning more each day, but the process is very slow. I know that my progress is not as fast as many other newcomers. Although I love Bobcaygeon I am often very homesick. I miss the Syrian culture and my friends and family. My parents and two of my brothers have relocated in Sweden. I also have a brother in Germany,

magnanimity and generosity seen time and time again from the business community in Bobcaygeon. They have made sure the Al Awads have not gone without what they need. After some recent setbacks, the Committee is moving forward with a plan to bring a second Syrian family here. They are working closely with government agencies to ensure their arrival early in 2018. If you would like to learn more about this group check out their page on Facebook under the following heading: Bobcaygeon and Area Syrian Sponsorship. The Kawartha Promoter is proud to have this opportunity for an exclusive interview with Yousef Al Awad, as told to Line Pinard with translation from Mustapha Elidrissi.

a sister and brother in Norway and one sister still in a refugee camp in Lebanon. My wife Miriam and I have four children: Yamama is 5, Hadeel is 4, Yaman is 3 and Mohamed who was born here in Canada will be 1 in September. The children love it here and are flourishing. They have adapted very well to Canada. Yamama can speak English and Arabic fluently and can switch from one language to another with ease. I hope that all my children will be bilingual in English and Arabic. Yamama loves school. I was very proud of her when she received the award for Most Improved Student when she finished Junior Kindergarten in June. Yamama’s enthusiasm for school has been passed on to her younger sister, Hadeel. Hadeel can’t wait to start school in September, take the school bus and play with other children in her class like her big sister. One challenge for Miriam and I is making sure that the children are getting enough exercise, and a variety of activities. They all have so much energy that it can be exhausting to keep them busy. In particular, 3-year-old Yaman likes to run and climb everywhere! They have a lot of pent up energy and the only time I can rest is when they are finally in bed at night. My dream is that one day we will get a property and build our dream home with space for the kids to run and play. I have come to love this country. It is a place where people can be safe and happy, and I would recommend Canada to any of my friends and family. I am aware of negative incidents that have happened to newcomers in other places, but I have never seen any of that here. I have found that people in this country are kind and tolerant. My final thoughts are that I hope that people will understand that some refugees have many challenges that can take a long time to address. I am very grateful for the patience and compassion that has been shown to us by the people here. My experience in Bobcaygeon makes me want to encourage other Syrian families to settle here. Thank you Canada! Thank you Bobcaygeon! September 22, 2017 - The Kawartha Promoter

The Bobcaygeon Fair dog show was started in 1972 by Sterling Jermyn, then a new member of the Fair board. He wanted to provide an event for children who did not have farm animals to exhibit, so he created the Pet Show for dogs and cats. In later years, the classes for cats were discontinued and it became the Bobcaygeon Fair dog show. Forty-five years later the show is still a popular event, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren of the kids who showed all those years ago enter each year. Classes for Best small, medium and large dogs are provided, to be shown by children 14 years of age and under. Prize money and ribbons are given out Fair day. A popular event in the show is the Obstacle Race for the person and dog. Classes for children 7 to 11 years and age 12 and over - allowing adults to compete in this race as well.  Some of the obstacles include tunnels, weave poles, board walk and hanging tire. The dogs are shown on leash and must do all the obstacles with the handler – i.e., the handler must go through the tunnels, too. People from all over Ontario have entered and watched the show. We hope you will join the fun, too.

Just when you thought the Bobcaygeon Fair’s Saturday night dance couldn’t get any better, it does! Joining Live on the Line on Saturday, September 30, the winners of this year’s Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Competition, The Jade Eagleson Band, will take the stage in the arena! I spoke with Brian Kerr, one of the band members about playing at the Fair. While this is the band’s first time at the Fair, it’s not some of the band members’ first time in Bobcaygeon. Brian, Dar Kimble and Brandon Taylor are all from the area. Brian Martin is from the Whitby area and Jade Eagleson, the lead singer and guitarist is from Baileboro. Brian says they’re thrilled to play the Fair. “Everyone has been so supportive of us. There was a bus to Boots & Hearts to cheer us on there. This one is straight from the heart and we want everyone to come out.” As winners of the competition at Boots & Hearts, the band will be heading to Nashville to record a CD. So this may be your last chance to catch this great band before they make it big! The dance starts at 8:30 and is an all-ages event. Tickets are $15 each and available at the door.

Take Part in the Fair

Gardeners view the end of summer with both regret and relief. Regret because the landscape will soon be covered with snow and relief because we can recover from that onslaught of gardening chores! However, before you curl up with a cup of tea and the 2018 seed catalogues, there is just one more exciting horticultural event. It is Fair Time! Historically, agricultural Fairs have played a key role in improving varieties of plants and breeds of animals. Our own Fair is efficiently managed by the Bobcaygeon Agricultural Society. The website, www. will impress with the wide range of competitions and activities. It’s very likely you have enjoyed viewing the displays of baking, crafts and horticulture. And perhaps, you suspect that your own zucchini, pot of jam or favourite rose would win top prize. Good news! This is your chance to be part of the event. The first step is to pick up a copy of the Bobcaygeon Fall Fair Homecraft, Homebaking and Junior Department Book. This “Blue Book” is your guide to all possible exhibits and rules of entry. Books are now available at British Empire Fuels, Granny

You can download the book in PDF format by going to the website, choosing “2017 Homecraft Book” link and downloading. The entry form is also available on the website. Fill out the entry form listing your homecraft items. Take the form to the Fair Office beginning Tuesday of Fair week or email it by Wednesday, September 27 to the Fair secretary. (See Page 9 in the blue book.) Please note that the request for insurance information is not required for homecraft exhibits. Your entry tickets will be waiting for you at the Fair Office on Tuesday and Wednesday and on Thursday morning. Finally, the big day arrives! Flowers should be cut in the cool of the morning or evening the day before the Fair and conditioned overnight in tepid water. Use simple, clean containers of a suitable size. Cut off all foliage below the water line. Follow instructions such as number of stems allowed or specified size of blooms. Vegetables should be free of dirt but not scrubbed clean. Uniformity is often rewarded with that first place. On Thursday, between 8:30 and noon, bring your items to the fairgrounds. If you have not already done so, pick up your entry tickets (the ticket you will attach to your item) at the Fair office. Finally deliver your tagged items and your entry form to the Curling Rink. Please arrive early as the cut off time of noon is strictly enforced to allow for afternoon judging. Participating in the Fair is fun and exciting and can be even financially rewarding! Children love to see their exhibits with ribbons attached. You may find it addictive. After all, the lure of competition and the reward of the red ribbon have kept Bobcaygeon folks in a “fair mood” for 159 years.

Business and Services

Crazy Monkey Tree Service is a tree care and removal business serving Bobcaygeon, Lindsay, Fenelon Falls, Cameron, Coboconk, Norland, Buckhorn, and Dunsford areas. We offer a variety of services from lot clearing, tree pruning, tree cabling, and stump grinding, to hazardous tree removal and insurance work. We also offer free estimates and consultations.

Why Hire Us

Tasks such as tree removals can be extremely dangerous for individuals that are not trained to do so safely. Hiring professionals to do such jobs is a great way to prevent any possible injuries/damages that may occur if these tasks are completed improperly. We offer advice regarding the removal as well as tree care. Crazy Monkey is also fully licensed, liability insured and covered through WSIB for workplace safety. This reassures customers that any injuries and/or damages that could occur on the job site are completely covered.

Emerald Ash Borer

The emerald ash borer is a small insect that damages and kills trees within one to four years of infestation. The ash borer has just recently become more prevalent in central Ontario. The fact that it has very few natural enemies, combined with the fact that native ash trees have limited resistance to attack, these insects have become a major problem very quickly. Typically, within six years of a woodlot infestation, more than 99% of the ash trees will have been attacked and killed. The prevalence and area infested by ash borer is expected to continue to expand, mostly through the movement of infested material such as firewood. Trees affected by the ash borer become a hazard as they become weak, and because of this, it is recommended you get your ash trees inspected. If your trees have been infested, they may need to be removed to prevent further spread of disease. However, trees can also be injected with insecticides to protect them from being attacked by the ash borer. Our company supervisors are more than happy to take a look at any questionable trees and make suggestions to mitigate the infestation.

It would seem as though summer 2017 barely arrived, but with the arrival of our fall colours, we know the first snow fall is not far off. As this cottage season winds down many cottagers will be closing up their home away from home over the coming weeks. The top two cottage and RV insurance claims are due to damage caused by water and wind during the winter, or early spring. It is a good idea to take these few extra precautions (that may just end up saving you money and grief next year). 1. Inspect your roof, and clean out your eaves troughs. Water damage from leaks make up the majority of water-damage claims. 2. Shut off and drain your plumbing. Water left in pipes can freeze and burst in the cold winter temperatures. 3. Trim overhanging and dead branches. Heavy snow falls can cause branches to snap, damaging your cottage or RV. 4. Pack up all food and defrost the refrigerator leaving the door ajar to prevent mold and mildew from growing. 5. Remove fire hazards from inside and outside your property. Turn off and unplug all appliances. Also, toss or take away any loose papers, newspapers, old rags and chemicals left hanging around.

Be Safe This Hunting Season

By Kirk Winter

Now that Fall is here, thousands of responsible and respectful outdoor enthusiasts are preparing for the hunt of their choice. Every hunting season has its share of mishaps; some tragically lead to a loss of life. While no hunting season checklist is foolproof, it is worthwhile to give some serious thought to your health, safety and the safety of others before you go rifle, shotgun, or bow hunting. Every province and municipality has different hunting regulations. However, there are safety measures that need to be respected and good judgment that needs to be exercised whenever a firearm or bow is used for hunting. Here are just a few: 1. Make sure you have the proper safety courses and licenses completed and purchased before you set out on the hunt of your choice. 2. Wear blaze orange so you are easily visible. 3. When travelling to and from a hunting area, keep your firearms unloaded and locked. 4.  Do not hunt in populated areas. Many standard hunting rounds are deadly to over 4km. 5. Do not hunt while tired or under the influence of alcohol or any kind of drugs including prescription medication. 6. Obtain permission to hunt on private property. Conflicts regarding trespassing can quickly escalate into something unfortunate and tragic. 7. Carry a cell phone with you at all times in case instant communication is necessary. 8. When hunting alone, let someone know where you will be hunting and when you expect to return. If tragedy was to occur, easy location could be the difference between life and death. All it takes is one “slob hunter”, who wilfully ignores the suggestions above, to bring a lifetime of heartbreak to another outdoor enthusiast’s family. Prepare before you go into the bush and have a safe, successful and enjoyable hunt.

6. Have one last walk through to check everything one last time. Lock up and feel at ease. If available, it is always a good idea to have a friend or neighbour check in on your property while you are away. If this winter goes by as fast as this summer has, you’ll be back enjoying your cottage, damage free, before you know it.

Sometimes we meet people who we feel we’ve known all our lives. That recently happened to me when I met artist Daniel Marlatt of the Miskwaa Art

studio tour Victoria County

Studio and Outdoor Gallery. Artist Daniel and his wife, Lynne, moved to 250 Edwina Drive last July from Richmond Hill. Daniel found the house online and, wanting to move north, he and Lynn decided to take a look. “As soon as I stepped out of my Jeep, I knew I was home,” Daniel told me. “I felt the spirituality of the whole area. I heard the Miskwaa Ziibi River behind the house, smelled the air and I knew this was it.” Daniel’s objective is to have an outlet for his own art, but also to promote other emerging artists. He has experience in many mediums including acrylic and oils, but now allows his environment to creatively lead him. He says, “I allow the natural stain or grain of the wood and the grain of the stone to tell the story. Then I put it together into a piece of art.” Daniel says moving to the area saved his life. “I’ve got heart issues and since I’ve been here my medications have been reduced, I have more energy and I can’t wait to wake up in the morning to think about what I’m going to create next.” The Gallery is outdoors where people can walk through the exhibits in the woods under a green canopy, then stop at the River to decompress. “A lot of people just come for the environment,” says Daniel. “I don’t pressure people to buy a piece of art – they have to feel it and appreciate it. I encourage people to feel my artwork – the coolness of the stone, the grain of the wood. It’s not just a visual experience.” Miskwaa Art Studio and Outdoor Gallery is on the Victoria County Studio Tour over two weekends - September 23, 24, 30 and October 1st. The Gallery is open most days from 11am. You can also follow them on facebook at Outdoor Art Gallery at the Miskwaa. home home of the

Many of us tend to associate bullying with youngsters and teens. But there’s another side that shouldn’t be dismissed – abuse of seniors. According to Elder Abuse Ontario, it is a serious and growing problem. They cite statistics that indicate that between 2 and 10 percent of older adults will experience some type of elder abuse or neglect each year. In partnership with Community Care and the Abuse Prevention of Older Adults Network Peterborough, they’re hosting an event where you can learn to recognize the warning sings of the abuse of older adults and how to respond safely and supportively to help seniors at risk or experiencing abuse. There are eight events on the schedule, one of which is Thursday, September 28 at St. Matthews Church in Buckhorn. Doors open at 9am and the event runs until 10:30. Light refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is preferred but walk-ins are welcome. Contact Maggie Doherty-Gilbert at 705742-7067 Ext. 250 or Community Care Peterborough has information on their Facebook page.

By Pamela Vanmeer, Kawartha 411

Faye Carslake has lived in Dunsford her whole life. She spearheaded a campaign to keep the library in town and it appears to have worked - for at least a year. “We are very excited,” she told Kawartha 411. Carslake was one of a handful of Dunsford residents who showed up at a Kawartha Lakes Library Board meeting recently, where the future of the library was being debated. Councillor and Board member Mary-Ann Martin said, “I think the comments and questions raised were very similar to those when the city did the community centres and arenas in various areas. People are passionate about what they have and they don’t want it to be taken away, but we have to look at the big picture - the financial costs and the long term costs.” The lease of the library costs $20,000 a year. It’s one of the only libraries in the City that isn’t located in a city-owned building. The board has been reviewing a number of libraries across the region for efficiency and usage. The Burnt River Library was closed after a similar review. Now that they have been given one year to improve the library’s fortunes, residents are ready to get to work. “We are going to do our best, we are going to promote it,” Carslake said. “Our minister has come forward with a lot of ideas so she is going to work with us. We are going to approach the Dunsford school and see if we can get a program going with them.” They also plan on setting up a “Friends of the Library” organization to help raise awareness and funds. As the Board is in the process of recruiting a new CEO and the outgoing CEO, Diane Lansdell thought the decision to close the library should be held off until the incoming CEO had a chance to explore the options. “I think starting at this time there’s a lot of projects on the go and staff turnover. I would really like for this to be extended to give that new person time to

have some input into what’s to come.” The Board has held seven hours of interviews for the new CEO and will be setting up final interviews for September 22. The board voted almost unanimously to extend the Dunsford Library lease for one year.


A portion of Highway 35 will be temporarily fullyclosed to traffic for approximately 40 calendar days, between September 25 and November 17, as crews work to replace the Stoney Creek culvert. This Provincial project will include work at Highway 35, 5.6 kilometres south of Lindsay, and Highway 7 at Mount Horeb Road. Construction will span 0.15 kilometres. According to the Province, approximately 8,650 vehicles travel this section of Highway 35 in a day, increasing to 10,300 during summer periods. The purpose of this project is to replace the Stoney Creek culvert using an appropriate and cost-effective strategy. The project includes: • removal of existing culvert • removal of existing cast-in-place (CIP) concrete open footing culvert and footings

• construction of new two-cell precast concrete culvert and retaining walls • placement of new steel beam guide rail • reinstatement of the pavement and pavement markings • intersection improvements on Highway 7 at Mt. Horeb Road (City of Kawartha Lakes Road 31) During the closure of Highway 35, traffic will be diverted onto an off-site signed detour using Mount Horeb Road and Highway 7. Temporary traffic signals will be installed at the intersection of Highway 7 and Mount Horeb Road. This project is expected to be completed, with the exception of surface paving, this fall. The final completion date of May 25, 2018 will allow the contractor to complete the surface paving requirements. CKL Police will assign a paid duty officer to periodically patrol the area to enforce the By-Law. A temporary satellite ambulance station will be provided in Pontypool to ensure target times to rural emergencies can be met. All entrances near the culvert location will remain open and accessible at all times during construction.

“This is going to be a really fun way to come out and celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by exploring our natural heritage spaces and local wildlife, and discovering our watershed’s environmental issues, initiatives, and organizations,” explained event organizer and Foundation Chair Julia Taylor. At 1pm, the event kicks off with ‘Hands on Exotics’ where people will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of Canadian and exotic animals from around the world. From 2 to 3:30pm there will be a series of guided hikes through Ken Reid Conservation Area’s diverse trails and a fun and interactive environmental fair. At 3:30 ‘Matt the Birdman’ will begin Birds of Prey, a fantastic, interactive live show. The Environmental Fair will offer a number of educational and interactive booths including bee keeping and water pollution information, with displays by Green Up, Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, and more. The event is made possible, in part, thanks to a grant through the Kawartha Lakes Community Partnership and Development Fund Program for Canada 150th Celebrations.


Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MP Jamie Schmale was recently appointed as Deputy Shadow Minister for Natural Resources. Schmale’s assignment means that he will no longer sit as a member on the Standing Committee of Procedure and House Affairs as his new duties require him on the Natural Resources Committee. The Standing Committee on Natural Resources studies and reports on all matters relating to the mandate, management and operation of Natural Resources Canada and selected federal departments and agencies, including among others, the Atomic Energy of Canada, Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, National Energy Board, and Sustainable Development Technology Canada.

It’s Easy Being Green Close the Loop By Julia Taylor

It turns out that those are not specific enough questions for Google to answer. However when I search online for a specific product to purchase I can use the word ‘sustainable’, or ‘eco-friendly’ in front of the item I’m searching for in order to find sustainable options (usually made with recycled content). When I’m at a store purchasing a consumable item – e.g., toilet paper - I just read the packaging on the products offered and find out. A few things off the top of my head that are available with pre- and post-consumer recycled content are toilet paper, printing paper, yoga pants, carpet and some children’s toys. I’m sure once you start digging you’ll find more. If we don’t buy things made out of recycled content, where will our recycling go?

On Tuesday mornings, my kids love to watch the garbage truck coming down the street. If we are outside they always wave to the drivers and sometimes they yell “goodbye recycling”. It reminded me of those song lyrics – “recycle, reduce, reuse, and close the loop - you can make a difference.” I can’t remember if that was a commercial jingle or a song from the cartoon Captain Planet, but I bet a lot of you know it. home of So what does ‘close the loop’ mean?

Optometrists play an essential and ongoing role in ensuring the health of you and your family. They diagnose, treat and help prevent diseases and disorders affecting the visual system, the eye and related structures. They also assist in identifying general health conditions that are often first detected through an eye exam, provide referrals to specialists and can help manage post-eye-surgery health. From infants and grade-schoolers to grandparents, optometrists ensure quality of vision, eye health and life. Optometrists evaluate many factors affecting your vision and eye health. They review your case history, conduct an external and internal exam of your eyes and measure vision qualities. If an optometrist detects problems, they may recommend glasses, contact lenses, exercises, medication or surgery. Many serious eye conditions don’t have obvious symptoms. Some eye diseases only show symptoms when the condition is advanced, difficult, or even impossible to treat. A comprehensive eye exam when combined with computerized diagnostic imaging provides the full assurance of vision and eye health. Routine eye exams ensure good vision, eye health and peace of mind. If you do not already have an

optometrist, you do not need a referral to book an exam. Dr. Faye Crerar and Dr. Rob Anderson have provided Bobcaygeon with comprehensive eye care since 1992. They have done everything from prescribing glasses for infants to prevent a lazy eye to detecting brain tumours. Dr. Crerar and Dr. Anderson want to thank Bobcaygeon for 25 great years.

“Swimmer’s ear” (otitis externa) is infection and inflammation of the ear canal, which can be quite painful and can cause temporary hearing loss. These symptoms often occur as a result of water remaining in the ear after swimming, creating a moist environment for bacterial growth to occur. Cuts or abrasions in the lining of the ear canal (most often from cotton-swab “cleaning”) can also predispose the ear canal to bacterial infection. To treat this problem at home, gently irrigate the ear canal with a bulb syringe containing a solution of equal parts vinegar and alcohol (or select an over-thecounter product). If symptoms persist or worsen, do not hesitate to see a medical professional, who can prescribe antibiotic medication. If you would like to learn about the various ways of safeguarding your hearing from hazards of all kinds, we invite you to give us a call. Don’t put it off any longer. If you think your hearing abilities are less than they once were, call us to see what we can do for you. Between our commitment to your well-being and our dedicated staff, your hearing is in good hands. P.S. When cotton swabs are used to “clean” the ear canal, it usually results in pushing the earwax (cerumen) deeper into the ear canal, where it becomes compacted and more likely to contribute to an infection.

Since 2009, Project Zero has been delivered to 85 Ontario communities. When properly installed and maintained, combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms help provide the early warning that is needed to safely escape from a house fire or carbon monoxide exposure. “We have proof that prevention saves lives. Knowing this, we remain committed to educating our customers about the importance of installing a combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, as well as properly maintaining fuel-burning equipment,” said Joel Mackie, Enbridge Gas Distribution.  Kawartha Lakes Fire Chief Mark Pankhurst remarked, “These additional smoke and carbon monoxide alarms will be put to good use across our municipality. We look forward to the opportunity to share early prevention and detection tips with residents as we roll them out.”


Earlier this month, the Ontario government announced they’ll introduce legislation later this fall to manage the distribution and sale of cannabis. According to their official news release, the plan would have several components: • A minimum age to use, purchase and possess recreational cannabis in Ontario will be 19. • The LCBO will oversee the legal retail of cannabis in Ontario through new stand-alone cannabis stores and an online order service. • Approximately 150 standalone stores will be opened by 2020, including 80 by July 1, 2019, servicing all regions of the province. Online distribution will be available across the province from July 2018 onward. • A coordinated and proactive enforcement strategy will be implemented, to shut down illegal dispensaries and enforce the “over 19” laws. George Soleas, President & CEO of the LCBO, says “The LCBO looks forward to working with the Government of Ontario to ensure the carefully controlled sale of cannabis across the province when it is legalized.” The province will support young people and vulnerable populations through the development of an integrated prevention and harm reduction approach that would promote awareness of cannabisrelated health harms and help people make informed decisions about use. The approach will also include education, health and social service providers that work with, and educate, youth and young adults. Ontario intends to consult closely with municipalities, Indigenous communities, and stakeholders to determine additional details about the retail and distribution system.
